Adam and I recently attended the newly formed “Leicester Wedding Club” which took place at The City Rooms in Leicester city centre; the club is the brainchild of Leah Spicer who owns a lovely stationery company called Golden Apple. Having attended various networking events, she really wanted to attend something which was specifically wedding related... when she couldn’t find anything she decided to set up her own club!
The first event was a huge success and Leah was totally bowled over by the number of us that attended! It’s certainly the first time that we’ve ever had to queue to get into The City Rooms! It was a lovely opportunity to meet up with a few people that we already knew and a great opportunity to meet with new people in the business. There were too many people to mention all in one post so, if you would like to see a full list of the attendees, visit their facebook page here: Leicester Wedding Club’s site. We do however have a couple of people to mention here and I may well do a complete write up on them in a forthcoming blog post… so watch this space.
First off is Ricky Dicky Cards: we’re a big fan of his, firstly because he is so funny (and he lets us take the mickey out of him!) but secondly because he’s a fantastic graphic designer who specialises in stationery. We think his designs are really original and love his passion and enthusiasm for what he does.
Secondly we must mention the girls from Save the Date: the magazine is a relatively new concept for Weddings and Events in the East Midlands and our meeting with Lydia and Abbi was short but very sweet. May I also just say that they’re very glamourous ladies who put all of us to shame! They were on their way to the “Rock n Roll Bride” party in London (which all you Twitterers out there will know is quite a big deal!) We hope to be able to work with lots them in the future.
Like I said, there’s far too many to mention here, but we’ll certainly be checking in with a few more in future blog posts and hopefully meeting again at the next Leicester Wedding Club event. We’re really looking forward to it Leah!
